Kilsheelan NS has wholeheartedly embraced the Active Schools initiative to acquire the Active Flag through a range of fun and engaging activities, including:
Incorporating Daily Active Breaks into the school routine, providing students with energetic movement opportunities throughout the day.
The Run Around Ireland Challenge encourages students to collectively track their distance covered through various activities.
Jump Into January promotes skipping activities to enhance cardiovascular fitness and coordination.
These events then culminate in Active Schools Week, a celebration of physical activity with sports competitions, fitness challenges, and workshops. By actively partnering with local sports clubs and community organisations, the school has provided additional opportunities for students to engage in organised physical activities. We have also encouraged active travel, promoting walking and cycling to school. Through these initiatives, Kilsheelan NS has created an inclusive environment that fosters physical activity and instills healthy habits among students, positioning them as a shining example of an institution dedicated to promoting active lifestyles.
